6 rare seals found dead on Molokai Island, Hawaii

Federal and state authorities are investigating the death of another endangered Hawaiian monk seal on Molokai Island.

This is the sixth monk seal found dead on the island since the beginning of this year.

NOAA said this is an unprecedented number of deaths, and a joint state and federal investigation has been launched.

Officials said a young female monk seal was found dead on the south shore of Molokai on Sunday. The seal was identified as “L11” and was one of the cubs born on the island in 2020.
